Condemns the Herrin Massacre.
Washington, Aug. 19.President
Harding announced to congress and
the country that his administration,
having exhausted every means for a
settlement of the rail and coal strikes,
now was resolved "to use all the pow
er of the government to maintain
transportation and sustain the right of
men to work."
Absent Members Called.
Telegrams to absent members of the
house interstate commerce committee
to return at once to Washington to be
gin work on bills recommended by the
President for creation of a coal agency
and a fact-finding commission for the
coal industry, were sent out by Repre
sentative Mondell, the Republican lead
er, after the President's address. Lead
ers plan to have these measures taken
up early next week and made ready for
Accounting for his course during the
recent trouble in an address to the sen
ate and house, the President said he
did not propose to ask for any "hasty
action" by congress in the railroad
strike, but that authority should be
given to set up a commission to make
a sweeping investigation into the coal
industry "to reveal every phase of coal
production, sale and distribution."
As another measure in the coal situ
ation the President asked for the cre
ation of a temporary national coal
agency to purchase, fell and distribute
coal In Interstate shipment as an "in-
strumentality of guarding the public
interest where private conscience is In
sensible to a public need."
Condemns Herrin Crime.
Groups who take the law into their
own hands, the President said, and at
tempt to control for their own purposes
the resources of the whole people can
only be regarded as perils to public
safety. He said neither employers nor
employees could entirely escape re
sponsibility for the present industrial
situation, but he condemned in par
ticular the "shocking crime at Herrin,
The President said the government
was helpless to intervene, but, on the
allegation that two aliens were among
the killed, and in view of the absence
of all provision in federal law under
which the federal government can pro
tect aliens in their treaty rights, he
now asks congress to pass a law un
der which the government can take
hold in cases such as that of Herrin.
Country at Union's Mercy.
The President likewise committed
himself to the assertion that the Unit
ed Mine Workers' organization now
has the whole country "at its mercy."
With special reference to the Herrin
massacre, the President said:
"My renewal of this oft-made recom
mendation is impelled by a pitiable
sense of federal Impotence to deal with
the shocking crime at Herrin, 111.,
which so recently shamed and horrified
the country. In that butchery of hu
man beings, wrought in madness, it is
alleged that two aliens were murdered.
This act adds to the outraged renc2
of American justice the humiliation
which lies In the federal government's
confessed lack of authority to punish
that unutterable crime.
"Had it happened in any other land
than our own, and the wrath of right
eous justice were not effectively ex
pressed, we should have pitied the civ
ilization that would tolerate It and
sorrow for the government unwilling
or unable to mete out just punishment.
"It is deplorable that there are or
can be American communities where
even there are citizens, not to speak
of public officials, who believe mob

World's Wonder Waterway.
A canal which, when it is completed,
will be the most wonderful waterway
in the world, has been started at Felse

The scheme Is to connect Rotterdam,

Rhine and a vast canal stretching
across Europe to the Swiss lakes, Gen

started at the Rhine end.
The greatest difficulty wsfl be the
action that passes through the town
of the present critical situation. There
is existing law by which to settle the
prevailing disputes. There are statutes
forbidding conspiracy to hinder inter
state commerce. There are laws to
assure the highest possible safety In
railway service. It is my purpose to
invoke these laws, civil and criminal,
against all offenders alike."
Though he pronounced as inade
quate the law creating the railway la
bor board, Mr. Harding said "no per

Announcing his decision to invoke
all pertinent laws in the interest of
industrial restoration, the President
used carefully chosen language to ap
ply his strictures to both employers
"Surely," he said, "the threatening
conditions must impress the congress
and the country that no body of men,
whether limited in numbers and re
sponsible for railway management or
powerful in numbers and the necessary
forces in railroad operation, shall be
permitted to choose a course which so
imperils public welfare. Neither or
ganizations of employers nor working
men's unions may escape responsi
bility. When related to a public serv
ice, the mere fact of organization
magnifies that responsibility and pub
lic interest transcends that of either
grouped capital or organized labor."
Refers to War on Unions.
At the same time, however, Mr.
Harding said he had "come to appraise
another element" in the present indus
trial situation which he held In some
degree responsible for strikes.
"I refer," he said, "to the warfare
on the unions of labor. The govern
ment has no sympathy or approval for
this element of discord in the ranks of
industry. Any legislation in the fu
ture must be as free from this ele
ment of trouble-making as it is from
labor extremists who strive for class

be renewed, unless a cure were pro
vided for the fundamental ills affect

Stating that the Esch-Cummlns act
in establishing the railroad labor
board was inadequate, being with little
or no power to enforce its decisions,
the President recommended action to
make the board's decisions "enforce

Stating that sympathetic railroad
strikes had developed and impaired
interstate commerce seriously, the
President said that trains deserted in
the western desert "had revealed the

In declaring positively for the right
of men to work, the President said
that in both the coal and railroad

cases, winked at by local authorities.
